    Hi Shirley, I just linked up with Holley Gerth’s Coffee For Your Heart too. I like to read at least a handful of the other posts and I picked yours today to start. You write beautifully and I could picture all the various scenarios like walking into a store and announcing I’m here versus slowing to hold the door for another. I’m glad you included the small thing of remembering the tender days of those we know. That really resonated in my heart as it is one thing God has recently called me to make specific efforts towards doing. I just bought a couple boxes of cards and am planning to send at least one card per week to someone, more as I see or think of it, but I’m committing to one card per week at least. Thanks for sharing some beautiful writing and great ideas today! Blessings to you!

      Thank you so much, Babs! I appreciate all that you wrote. I am a firm believer in sending cards, too! I was even on a committee at church once that sent cards out to individuals. Long before that, I did this in my own life with my family and friends. It has always been important to me, and I am so glad to see that God has placed this desire on your heart to share your loving kindness to someone once a week by your written words in those cards. What a blessing you will be to them when they receive these cards out of the blue. This can be your ministry. I see beautiful things happening through what you are doing!
